" How short and sharp of speech was she, 
Why, 'twas a real ecstasy." 

Somewhere far up in the high pinnacles of the Abbot Honor Roll, you're 
sure to find Judy! She's mighty clever in more ways than one and is always 
ready to do anything and everything — even to accompanying herself to doleful 
ditties on the piano. But, oh, Judy, why will you make those awful remarks? 
Can't you see the rosy blushes chasing each other over the Abbot countenance?

" Feet that run on willing errands." 

Wherever you hear a burst of highly amused, though slightly vacuous laughter, 
it's Peg. She personifies the height of good humour, even the day after we get 
back from Christmas vacation. She's musical, too, it is rumored, though all 
we've heard has been an occasional slight squeak from the music rooms. Keep it 
up, Peg, we need musical talent in the class — witness the sing on the stairs the 
night the rings came.

"Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice. u 

See that tall, lithe figure, who seems to have a superfluous quantity of legs, 
gamboling about the basketball field ? Can it be the same Edith Adams who sang 
so sweetly last night, looking positively saintly in the candle-light. Looks cer- 
tainly are deceiving — now so bold and brave and yet they say that at the 
slightest sound from her waste basket, she flees incontinently.

"Her very foot has music in it." 

Of course she's a dreadfully strict Student Government President, and we 
quiver with terror when she rebukes us, but she's such a lot of other things too, 
that we like to forget that little item. Hope has a big share of the pep that keeps 
the school going, so that singing isn't the only thing she leads us in. And we 
don't mind the funny way she pitches songs because she looks so excited when 
she's up on her toes leading them. We really couldn't get along without her, be 
it for dancing, working, playing or just generally.

" What man dare. I dare." 

We can't help remembering the antics of Senior Mid year when Ave watch our 
Social President now. Both by repetition and contrast that is, for while there is 
plenty of fun and even silliness left in her. there is also a tremendous amount of 
ability and cleverness cropping out. She is undeniably good at doing the things 
that make our world go 'round ; it awes us even, though we love her for it. Eliza 
reduces madly whenever she remembers to, but we privately think that she 
laughs too much for it to do much good. However, "reduced " or not, we couldn't 
sret along without her, we confess.

"In faith, Lady, you have a merry heart." 

Bushy's little but she's been with us a long time and we can't help liking her, 
she's such a good sport. She and Al make up the long and the short of the front 
row in chapel. We love to see her swing her chubbiness over the apparatus in 
gym, and we hope she'll be a gym teacher some day. She plays the "fiddle" like 
everything and you ought to see her play hockey. It's a most marvelous sight 
the way she always gets the ball.

"So stands the statue that enchants the world." 

We think Al is rather a heroine. It was really she who won the Bradford 
basketball game for us, by giving practise to our tall jumping center with unfailing 
good humor. However she was rewarded by jumping against Miss Chickering in 
the famous Faculty-Student game. We won that also. You're our basketball 
mascot, we gather, Al !

" The hand that hath made you fair, hath made you good." 

Whose " Yale Record" is that in the rack? Why ask! It's Mary's of course. 
She went to the Prom, too, the lucky thing, and was away from our happy midst 
for days, but she's so clever, it didn't make any difference and she made up her 
work without winking an eyelash. How we envy those dimples — and the never- 
failing answer.

"Such music as, 'tis said, before was never made.' 1 '' 

We think it's rather too bad that Dixie is so awfully engaged. Just think of 
all the men that won't have a chance now, and see what they're missing! Still 
it's not surprising! After listening for a while to her violin everybody knows 
perfectly that Dixie herself must be a peach. We are perfectly happy listening to 
her when she is classically inclined, but she is also much in demand to give the 
finishing touch to the school talent orchestra that keeps us dancing on, joyously 
unconscious of bells.

■ SUSAN EUGENIA DODGE 

"Sue" 

114 So. Huron St., Ypsilanti, Mich. 

Two years 

Vice-Pres. Student Gov. '20 
Senior Play 




"She moves, a goddess, and she looks a queen." 

Sue spent the first year here in comparative ease and comfort, but when her 
second year came the weight of the world was thrown on her shoulders and every 
time the bell rang, we saw her rushing to her room and sending all in her path 
right and left. But at other times she entertained us with her dry humour and 
we have yet to find the girl who can rival her good nature. Sue's ear rings are 
known and borrowed the whole school over, but it takes Sue to really carry them off!

" She is pretty to walk with, and witty to talk with, and pleasant too, to think on." 

Hinkey's eyes are blue, her locks black, too, but she isn't Irish at all, but an 
old veteran of our class. Talk about your heavenly dispositions, well, Hinkey 
possesses one of them, — she is a little gloom-chaser and one never feels blue when 
she is around.

"Oh, what may man within him hide, 
Though angel on the outward side?" 

Marj is a good old scout! She is very quiet around school but we have a 
feeling that when she gets out -- well, there's a difference. She always seems to 
have just what we want, and whether it is food or an idea for our English theme, 
she is always ready to part with it. Marj believes "variety is the spice of life" 
where men are concerned.

" Thy rapt soul sitting in thine eyes." 

Dot is a wonder to us all and if we didn't admire her so much, we might be 
inclined to be jealous. What can't she do? She can draw, act, sing, and write 
no end of thrilling stories! Mercury himself has nothing on Dot as we well know 
from seeing her sprint around the Circle before our noted Bradford Field Day. 
We would say that her popularity is not confined to Abbot, judging from the 
multitude of candy boxes which are thrust into her hands along the way to and 
from school.

"Our jovial star reigned at her birth." 

Whether it's playing the piano, her first reluctance overcome by pleading 
cries, or trying to skii, sitting at the dinner table or on the Boston train, her merry 
laugh peals forth, to be recognized by all as hers and hers only. It is uncontrol- 
lable and contagious and adds much to the joy of life in general. Because of this 
we are amazed to realize that she plays, and exceedingly well too, that most un- 
humerous of instruments, the organ. In spite of the more serious moods that come 
and go, it must be confessed that Henry likes "spice".

" What is life when wanting love?" 

Once in a while Irene, — who is usually in her seventh heaven, -- comes 
down to earth, and then we try to get to know her. It is most peculiarly strange 
how most of us have a strong dislike for "Bills", but it's queer she doesn't. 
Wonder why! There's a reason, and we hope she'll be happy.

"So sweetly virtuous and pure, 
And yet a little pert be sure." 

Peg has been with us since the year one, and is one of the corner stones of 
1920, — a quiet little miss but when she gets going --you'd be surprised. She 
looks quite tame but she can hold her own with any one except when it comes to 
getting to chapel, — then she just doesn't get.

" She was young and fair and gay 
As the young and glorious day." 

Isn't it strange how some perfectly nice people can be so addicted to playing 
the ukelele at all times of the night and day, but perhaps Viv's strong affections 
make her sentimentally inclined. But you really can forgive much because of 
that "red and white Nature's own sweet and cunning hand laid on." Besides, 
she's really very intellectual and gets good marks on the most fearful exams.

DORIS STONE GRAVES 
"Tootie" 
51 Verndale St., Brookline, Mass. 
Two years Wellesley College 




" The glass of fashion and the mold of form, the observed of all observers." 

Tootie isjust Tootie — and to those who know her that says a whole lot. We 
often wonder if her supply of giggles will ever give out, but from present appear- 
ances we guess not — she will smile her way through life. Once in a while she 
becomes serious, but her friends get so alarmed that she changes her mind and 
becomes natural again. However, we judge her smiles are not in vain -- from the 
regularity of her mail!

" Your name is great in mouths of wisest censure." 

Our president can be undeniably haughty when necessary; delinquents quail 
before her cold capability! But if she rules with a rod of iron at times, it is cer- 
tainly gratifyingly successful ruling, and we have her to thank for what we have 
been as a class this last year. And taken in an informal, non-study group, pre- 
ferably munching apples or candy, Kay can be so continuously funny that mirth 
speedily becomes the order of the day. She is also everlastingly industrious. We 
think she's embroidered a million little towels and hankies and things.

" Never idle a moment, but thrifty and thoughtful of others." 

Lillian is the most really and truly good natured person. She does and says 
things kindly; for example, she has even been known to offer packing room in her 
trunk for refractory goloshes whose owners happened to be going her way at va- 
cation time. Being human, as we all are, she has her troubles over, let us say, the 
Divine Comedy, but we are realizing that she is an expert at the skilful refreshment 
of snowshoes, skis, and all the implements of winter sports.

" Fresh of spirit and resolved to meet all perils very constantly. " 

At least the snows did one good thing for us this winter when they brought 
Kay into our midst. Think what a lot we would have missed if she had never 
come to live with us and if we had never had a chance to know her as she really is. 
Is there anything in the line of sports Kay can't do? If there is we should like to 
know it. At hockey she is a marvel and to see her shinny up the rope in gym is as 
good as a trip to the circus. Why is it, Kay, that you get such good marks in 
Latin — we wonder?

We like to watch Betsey ski. When indulging in this remarkable sport she 
makes us think of a blonde Viking come among us. We like her "mental gymnas- 
tics" too, be it without or within classes, and if it has become customary for her to 
walk off with most of their honors, — well, what of it? She apparently can't help 
it. She is also the possessor of yet another of the easily-recognizable and pleas- 
antly but frequently employed laughs in which the class seems to abound. Sec-

Although we hate Fire Drills, it does our heart good to see Ann, our noble 
Fire Chief, dashing down the halls and we have perfect confidence that in case of 
real fire, she'd not only save everybody but their pet valuables as well. She's very 
capable and extracts our A. C. A. money from us promptly if we show any signs 
of poverty or absent-mindedness. But where she shines most is on the hockey- 
field, where she speeds hither and yon with unfailing breath and brilliancy.

"I love not man less, but Nature more." 

There seems to be two particularly obvious things about Connie; one is her 
rhythmic dancing, the other the fact that she seems to shine as "the bright 
particular star" at Senior classes. We admit that she's clever, be it in infallibly 
comprehending the quaint vocabularies of Ethics and " Psych," or in dashing off a 
one-act play that rhymes. These things being obvious we shall ignore them, and 
dwell fondly on her less noticeable but perhaps equally enviable traits; as for 
instance, her fondness for dogs, which is slightly embarrassing when it comes to 
"picking up" all the stray canines of Andover; or again, her cheerfulness of 
character, demonstrated by the brightness of her seldom-absent orange scarf.

"Her pare and eloquent blood spoke in her cheeks." 

Florence is so very pretty that it seems queer to think of her as being a scholar, 
but for a girl who doesn't study much she does remarkably well. She always 
seems to be in some sort of trouble, and if her ever present smile did not act as a 
perpetual life-saver, we don't know what would become of her. YVe are uncertain 
as to what direction "Flossie" is partial to in Andover, but when in New York 
we are told she believes strictly in keeping to the "Wright."

We've been mighty sorry that Marjorie's had to leave us so much, for we're 
conceited enough to think that we as a class are much nicer than pneumonia and 
scarlet fever, even at home. So we hope she's missed us as we've missed her. And 
she certainly is a whiz at picking up her work and walking right into the Honor 
Roll again. She simply awes us. And it seems that she's our star pedestrian too. 
We watched with pride as she marched up to receive the very first blue armband

such a dazzling stock of adjectives she leaves you exhausted with mirth and

"She was quick metal when she went to school.' 1 

Isn't it almost too much, now we ask you, for a girl to sit right on the very top 
of the Honor Roll all the time, and then to do pretty nearly all the other things 
possible, and all the time to be perfectly calm and serene and at ease about it all? 
When Ginny really gets wrought up, as occasionally happens, we expect the sky 
to fall, and creep shrinkingly into very little corners. But then we know she'd 
prop even the sky up again, or shout at it and scare it up again. She'll be our 
Abbot orator some of these days, after her impromptu experiences here, and then 
think how proud we'll be of her voice!

came she found that there were others to fill the vacant place. Then, too, there's 
Bowdoin, and, though Polly doesn't confide much in us, we imagine that that . 
takes up quite a bit of her time and thoughts. Though she gets up every morning 
with the birds, it doesn't seem to make it any easier for her to " parler francaise."

{"Sure, a little bit of heaven") 
Sure a little bit of heaven fell from out the sky one day, 
And it nestled in New Hampshire, not so many miles away, 
And when the angels saw it, sure it looked so sweet and fair, 
They said, "Suppose we leave it, for it is so peaceful there." 
So they sprinkled it with sunshine just to make the pine trees grow, 
They're the finest ones that can be found no matter where you go. 
And they placed the mountains 'round it just to keep away the gale, 
And when they had it finished, sure they called it Intervale. 



(" You know what I mean!") 

Oh, we've been up at Intervale, 

And had a peppy time. 

It is the loveliest spot in all the world, 

In the north or southern clime. 

We've snowshoed, skiied, and hitched on pungs, 

And on trailers we've all hung. 

We've had steaks and cakes, and everything, 

Oh, you know what we mean! 

But you have heard that saying, "Home, sweet home," 

So you know what we mean, 

And we are mighty glad to see you 

After all that we have seen. 

So we are here today to say " Hello" to you, 

And we hope that sometime you are going to go there too, 

But it's hard to let you know the fun and sport we've had, 

So please know what we mean.

Oh, how we love to be at Intervale! 

When we are there we're glad as we can be. 

We all love to play out in the snow, 

And to snowshoe or to skii ; 

Oh, how we eat up there at Intervale! 

Ice cream and steak, and griddle cakes and pie. 

It's a place we never can forget,

^tsitorp of tfje Claite of 1920 



In (he beginning there were only seven, 
Who came from far and near to be at Abbot. 
Four of these maidens lived at Sherman Cottage, 
Where most amazing times they had together 
In playful, child-like sport, for young they were; 
And truly they longed more for Teddy-bears, 
And other things to lightly, freely play with, 
Than yearned their hearts for Algebra and Latin. 



But in the organ-loft we took our places, 

And with our eyes all bright, intent, and eager, 

We hung with beating hearts adown the railing, 

O'er which we well-nigh fell in ecstasy. 

Before we knew it almost came again 

The summer, with its days of warmth and gladness; 

Away we sped to all our happy homes. 



The other three, day scholars happy were, 
And home they gaily tripped at half-past three; 
At night they could be tucked in bed by motherl 
Well, time just skipped and jumped and danced along 
Until Commencement came, and then the summer, 
When all the seven returned from whence they came. 



Now in the season of the falling leaves 

They all came back again to be at Abbot. 

But " Pea- green Preps" they were no more, no longer; 

The "Jolly Juniors" now their schoolmates called them. 

One day they gathered in old Abbot Hall. 

Straight, tall, before them stood the Senior Leader, 

Who words of wisdom spoke throughout the stillness, 

And said that now we too might have our leaders. 

We chose for our first president Catherine Greenough, 

Who proved throughout the year a leader strong. 

We worked; and played at hockey, basket-ball, 

And tennis; happy Juniors eight we were! 

And then the time came for another leader, 

And "Janey" Prescott, lover of all sports, 

The chief of all high jumpers then we chose. 

Quick sped the days along until the night 
Came when the Abbot Prom so grand was held. 
O night, O night of nights it seemed to us 
Because we could not go; we were too "young"; 



As Junior-Mids we met in autumn time, 

And joyfully we greeted our new members. 

To lead our bonny class for half a year 

We Helen Vedder chose; we called her "Chick", 

And sometimes lengthened out the name to "Chicken' 

She was a strong and steady hockey player, 

And also knew the art of making baskets. 



Soon came a day which we had long awaited, — 

The day of our most glorious Class Picnic 

Beside the shining waters of Pomp's Pond. 

And of that very jolly, dear occasion 

We memories have of songs beside the fire, 

Of sandwiches, and "hot-dogs", and marshmallows; 

Of merry laughs all ringing out of tune, 

And rhymes and jingles written to each other. 



The next event which we enjoyed together 

A straw-ride was; and out at Wilson's Corners 

We sipped good chocolate hot, a drink most warming. 

When Christmas holidays were quite all over, 

And mid-years, too, those thrilling small "adventures" 

We chose for our fair class another leader 

To pilot us along uncertain ways, — 

Louise Robinson, who was oft called "Robby", 

A tennis-player matchless in her day.

Soon came again the "Prom" when some of us 
Were asked to usher in the honored dancers. 
Arrayed in evening gowns all sweet and modest, 
We stood in waiting groups beside the door, 
Prepared to lead inside those favored charmers. 
And as our high-heeled slippers sharply clicked 
Across the smoothness of the polished floor, 
We glanced above, up at the organ-loft ; 
And there we saw a host of little friends 
Just where we all had been the year before! 
When nights had come, and many days had gone, 
And fragrances of spring were in the air, 
In Davis Hall we gave a the dansant 
For just the Seniors, whom we held most dear. 



On Rally Night in June we sang our songs, 
And joined in snaky whirls around the circle. 
Then one by one we watched the guests depart, 
Until the winking lights were left alone. 



Grand Senior-Mids we were when once again 
Another fall we took our place at Abbot. 
Our president was Leonore Wickersham. 
Accomplishments in varied number had she, 
Among them skiing, a feat which well she loved. 



Now when the time came for a sport with Bradford, 
We could not play our usual game of hockey, 
Because so many tried and trusty sportsmen 
Both here and there were stricken with the "flu", 
And therefore could not practice and gain skill. 
Accordingly we planned to have a race; 
As Hare and Hounds we sped the country over. 
We Senior-Mids ran with the Bradford Juniors, 
And swiftly, eagerly we bounded off 
Behind our "Bushy", leader of the Hounds! 



Again this year we gathered by the waters, 
Those happy, smiling waters of Pomp's Pond. 
And there were mandolins and ukuleles 
Played by long, slender fingers; short ones, too! 
And there were all the customary frolics, 
And songs, filled full of joy, beneath the stars. 



Now after Christmas Holidays were over, 
The Senior-Middlers gave in Davis Hall 
A play, entitled this: "The Elopement of Ellen," 
In which there was a rector, most inane, 



Most fond and foolish, with peculiar actions. 
And also three fair girls, and likewise lovers. 



Next came the "Prom", that grand and state occasion 

To which the Senior-Mids with ardor went. 

Those evening gowns! Oh! If you could have seen them 

You would have gazed for hours in admiration. 

They were most charming, and most beautiful, 

And filled both in and out with yards of tulle. 

The music was the jazziest ever heard, 

And there was Bill from Harvard, Jack from Yale, — 

— And we must not forget the Hill Man Species. 

Before the fateful hour came to depart, 

The Class of 1920 held a banquet, 

And toasts, and songs, and great good cheer abounded, 

And all the members of the class of '20 

Began to have a wondrous, strange new feeling, 

A thought about the next year soon to come 

When they would be at last the Class of Seniors, 

And there was in each heart a deepened thrill 

At thought of this high office soon to come. 



And so it came about that one fall day 

The Class of Seniors came to dear old Abbot. 

The time had come for us to be the leaders, 

And strange it seemed to have no class above 

To look up to in love and admiration, 

As always there had been in years gone by. 

The president we chose was Catherine Greenough, 

And Louise Robinson was our vice-chairman, 

Hilda Heath was our class secretary, 

Caroline Wilkinson the treasurer. 



Responsibilities there were this year, 

But there were also gay and happy frolics. 

At Haggett's Pond we had the Senior Picnic, 

And O the fun! the merriment together! 

We gathered wood to put upon the fire, 

And then with joy watched the crackling flames 

That leaped up high to meet the coming darkness. 

Now after we had swung, see-sawed, and lunched, 

And after some of us, packed in a boat, 

Had really rowed upon those mighty waters, 

We had most rare performances and stunts 

Around among the shelter of the pines. 

And there were pantomimes, and many jokes, 

And dextrous skill in various ways was shown. 

Then back to Abbot rode we, jubilant, 

Our spirits soaring high as farthest star.

Examinations came; the Senior Maidens 

Went hurry- scurrying, upstairs and down, 

Indoors and out, around the Abbot circle 

And all their brains were crammed so very full, 

Were stuffed so carefully with weighty learning, 

That everybody thought they had "swelled heads," 

And never knew how hard they must be trying 

To keep their x, y, z's from falling out! 

Now after all these trials were safely over, 

And every head was once more free and empty, 

A recompense for all our labors came,. 

This being a trip to Intervale, New Hampshire 

We never, never, can forget that day 

When we got off the train up in the mountains, 

And realized the joys that were before us. 

We revelled in the skiing and the coasting, 

We tried with glee the bicycle on runners; 

We slid down hill on rocking-horse arrangements. 

We ate beefsteak, pancakes, and maple syrup, — 

In fact, we had a glorious, grand good time. 



One night in March the Senior Play was given. 
"Twelfth Night " it was, by gentle William Shakespeare. 
And there was much applause, great sound of clapping; 
And there were bows and smiles from finished actors. 
On April twenty-fifth for the last time 
The Seniors promenaded in the gym, 



With all the gaiety of years before, 
Their feet all keeping time with beating drum, 
And jazzy, brazzy instruments of music. 
Again the Hill Man Species hop-scotched down 
To dance beside the smiling Fem-Sem Seniors. 



In sweet May-time the Seniors had a banquet, 

And all the class assembled to make merry. 

Toasts there were, and winsome, blushing maidens 

Who round the table ran precipitous. 

(This is a secret; you must never tell!) 

After the banqueting was quite all over, 

The Seniors marched out through the darkness singing, 

And to the Senior Parlor went their way, 

To give it up to all the Senior Middlers. 



Soon came commencement-time: the garden party; 

The supper Sunday night out-doors with friends; 

The Draper Readings, and the Evening Concert. 

But that last day! The day of Graduation! 

How could we speak our strange and new emotions! 

We sang the Farewell Song with stirring feelings 

Of intermingled sorrow, hope, and joy. 

As in our hands we held the deep, red roses, 

Our hearts cried out with true, undying love, 

"Hail to our Alma Mater and our Class!"

Class Will anb Testament 



We, the class of 1920 of Abbot Academy, having attained more or less the 
expected amount of wisdom in our varying number of years here, and being as 
nearly in our right minds as we ever expect to be, and under the depressing in- 
fluence neither of bad marks nor of breakfast coffee, do hereby bequeath, in this 
our last Will and Testament, toward the growth and development of future gen- 
erations, our following battered belongings: 

I The opportunity of breaking their necks or anything else at Intervale 

to the class of 1921. 

II Our athletic prowess to the class that most needs it. 

III Our ability to answer the questions asked to next year's Academics. 

IV More examples of Senior handwriting to Miss "Chick". 

V Our "watery soup for beggars" to the future highbrows. 

VI The thrills of trunk banging in the hall to all homesick followers. 

VII All our low-heeled shoes to the Abbot rubbish heap. 

VIII Memories of the Academics as an inspiration to Miss Howey. 

IX Our "circles of Hell" to those who come after us. 

X To the girls with friends on the Hill, our front windows. 

XI Our serenity and poise to Phil Hinkley. 

XII Our flow of language to Dorothy Martin. 

XIII Our every day and Friday night mail to the first half-dozen appli- 

cants. 

XIV The top of the Honor Roll to the little Flaggs. 

XV Our accumulated dramatic talent to Carol Perrin. 

XVI Our organdies and ginghams that are all alike to the Thompson 

twins.

Seniors may come and Seniors may go, but Senior Lit. Classes, it would seem, 
continue forever. And the Odyssey being classic, Seniors yearly conduct the 
god-like hero past the terrors of his wanderings and the mazes of Hades. Thrill- 
ing as these are, the resulting themes and tests prove really more dully soothing 
than startling, so I, the small but mighty Lit. teacher felt entitled to drop asleep 
over them one lamp-lit, misty evening. Naturally in my vivid dream I found 
myself descending into this well-studied Hades, but why should I have found it 
inhabited by the class of 1920? My only explanation can be that they, when at 
Abbot, were undeniably astonishing in their literature work. 

My dream adventures began terrifyingly when I was attacked at the portals of 
Hades, by a shrilly-barking Cerberus. I recognized him as a tiny brown Andover 
dog named Skip; nevertheless I screamed. It seemed natural that Charlie, one 
of the chief props of Abbot Academy, should spring to my rescue, and as he led 
me across a small bridge he told me that he had succeeded to old Charon's name 
and business, and offered to conduct me to the "Abbot Special", which left hourly 
for the circle reserved for Abbot. 

I knew he was quite correct when I saw Connie Ling, a frantically waving 
"traffic cop," who courteously held up traffic to help me into the Abbot Special, 
a neat but not gaudy street car. Helen Donald was its dashing conductorette, and 
I noticed the motorwoman, Doris Graves, efficiently tooting her horn. It seemed 
natural to see Ros Patch and Peg French sitting happily together on one of the 
large seats, and Bertha Worman, who was there also, told me that this was their 
nineteenth trip back and forth. They were so interested in each other that they 
forgot to get off and she was still trying unsuccessfully to separate them. I was so 
surprised to see Jean McClive surreptitiously powdering her nose in another 
seat that she hastily pointed out to me Miriam Rowell on the back platform 
smiling and chatting with Charon. As we started off I saw through the window 
Ann Hussey in mad pursuit of a shabby little jitney, which Bertha immediately 
told me Heinie Ford had started in opposition to the Abbot Special. Looking out 
I could see Lucy herself driving with her expression intent and brow knitted, 
and I caught sight of Louise Robinson and Kay Hamblet within clutching each

other desperately as the little Ford whizzed along. Farther on we crossed the 
winding Styx and I watched a graceful dive made by Polly Parrott, who seemed to 
be in bathing all by herself. On the bank of one of the deep pools sat Dot Fisher, 
raptly casting and re-casting, and apparently being laughed at by all the little 
fishes present, as her basket was empty. 

I was first off when the little conductorette called out "The Abbot Circle", 
and the first thing I saw was a huge gate of dark green marble, its white marble 
letters spelling out the class motto "Tarry On". It didn't seem quite right, I 
thought even in my dream, but I forgot it promptly as Carrie Wilkinson peeped 
beguilingly out of the door, offering to sell me the necessary sight-seeing ticket. 
Naturally, I hastened in, to find Paula Miller, whom Carrie slangily remarked, 
was "handing out her dizzy line" as a general introduction to the attractions of 
Hades. The first thing I saw was a neat information bureau, with a beautifully 
printed sign saying "All Questions Answered" and behind it sitting Kay Green- 
ough, who, besides giving spicy bits about Hades to all newcomers, was also lec- 
turing in the afternoons on many interesting subjects, it seemed. 

Sounds had already met my ear, and I was looking around involuntarily for 
Hope Allen who ought, of course, to be leading. I found her soon, the conductor 
of the Hades Jazz Band, enthusiastically on her tip toes, and ably supported by 
Ginny Miller, the Vice-President. I realized how I must have neglected the musi- 
cal talent of Abbot 1920, as I was surprised to see Marjorie Miles playing the 
guitar, Dorothy Tyler playing the xylophone and Helen Walker, the trombone. 
I also noticed Vivien Gowdy off by herself desperately tuning her ukulele. The 
entire result was so inspiring that it seemed very natural to see Hilda Heath and 
Marjorie Downs dancing together with languid grace. 

Wafted onward by these rhythmic strains I next halted before the great 
central throne, on which sat the queen of all, the majestic Satana, whom I recog- 
nized with interest as my erstwhile pupil, Sue Dodge. She appeared cool, self- 
possessed and possibly a trifle bored. Edith Adams, the court contortionist, was 
feverishly exerting herself to charm her indifferent ruler; Betty Babb pranced 
about waving her jester's bauble and coxcomb beguilingly, but all in vain. How- 
ever, when I saw Helen Thiel painstakingly reproducing on a large square of paper 
the regal form and features I appreciated the pose of the Queen. Margaret Wor- 
man was sitting on the lower step of the throne mending the hem of Susan's 
purple velvet robe. If I had not caught a glimpse of Lyd McCreary's yellow hair 
I might have missed her altogether. She was curled up in the midst of countless 
cushions on the bottom step of the throne dreaming with blissful serenity, and 
apparently unceasingly. I missed her conversation; sleep only could silence it, I 
gathered. 

72 



The A bbot Circle 1920 

After the majestic model had indifferently returned my salutation, I passed 
on, to find a long table holding food of many sorts: scallops, club sandwiches, 
steak, French pastry, and gaily presided over by Betsy Hawkes, who was running 
this so-called bread line for her sisters-in-hunger. Helen Polk and Martha Stock- 
well were clamoring for first place, Agatha Wade and Muriel Moxley patiently 
awaiting their turn, and Ruth Winn bringing up the rear with a famished look. 
Just beyond the group I saw Isabel Sutherland striding about and wailing, "Oh 
for a breath of air!" But Hades had no windows for her to open. 

I next came to a fetching little hairdressing shop, owned and operated by a 
perfectly marcelled blond whom I knew instantly to be Elsa Baalack. She was 
just putting the finishing touches to another faultless wave on the head of Lee 
Wickersham, and her assistant, Jean Lyon, was standing by to stylishly coif 
Lee's long yellow locks. 

In sad contrast to this picture of perfect bliss was a sight in one of the more 
retired corners, which was apparently the reducer's circle. Here I saw Edna 
Dixon and Peg Ackroyd going through the required but indescribable motions 
with set determined faces. Charlotte Vose, who kept a beautifully fitted Turkish 
bath near by, was cheering them on from the vantage point of her own desirable 
slimness. And Judy Abbe, clutching the little shades of "Sunshine" and "Shad- 
ow", the two cats known and loved at Abbot in the days of 1920, was classically 
singing to them in her coloratura soprano. 

It was pleasant to find Eliza Bailey as the much amused nursemaid of a troop 
of little devils, who disported themselves playfully about her. I recognized Alice 
Davis and Mary Bushnell as two gamboling imps, Lillian Grumman and Irene 
Franklin as others. Lucy Pratt was vainly endeavoring to bob their respective 
locks; she had evidently taken up the trade of barber and was advertising her skill 
on her own head. 

As I reapproached the gate I saw coming toward me Florence Matile, sad 
but blushing in the garb of a nun, and nervously telling over and over a long 
rosary of fraternity pins. Wandering about hand in hand I caught sight of two 
still-bewildered fallen angels, Jay Pearsall and Georgia Warren. Unexpectedly 
I laughed, and awoke with a start to find myself contemplating a poem of Ros 
Patch's in a worn old 1919 Courant, and remembered that in the dream I had 
thought her very poetic-looking. As I slowly pieced together my dream-adven- 
tures I realized that Mary Delano and Kay Kinney had been the only missing 
members of the class of 1920. With a sigh I came to the conclusion that they only 
of that promising class had gone to Heaven.

Shadows on snow --what are they? --gray, or green, --or silvery purple? 
Paint them, and you may think you have found what it is. No -- for try as you 
will, you can't reproduce shadows on snow. Shade your eyes and look again;— 
the light has shifted, all is changed ; it must remain a mystery. 

In some such way it is, that we all at times, perhaps in weak moments, peer 
ahead with straining eyes and try to distinguish the coloring of our future. How- 
ever unprofitable we have found it we will try for the hundredth time, — and be 
baffled. We cannot seem to leave that tantalizing thing -- the Unknown — alone. 
But curiosity must be forever poking about, unexhausted. Why does the thing 
fascinate us so? We purchase Ouija boards and sit stiffly- — for hours, enam- 
oured by the fitful sliding of that little triangle, and take awesome delight in the 
tales it tells us. And at bazaars, — or always popular Hallowe'en revels, we are 
magnetized towards the dark-browed gypsy, and feel pleasant little thrills when 
she crosses our hands with our own good silver, and tells us of ships and journeys, 
bad luck and dark men. How indifferently then we laugh at her threats, — and 
later, in private, scan the secret lines — and wonder! 

We wonder -- here in Abbot --we who will not be here a year from tonight. 
Does the Ouija board hold anything for us? Not a thing! Yet we think a good 
deal of that "next year." We think we have hit it! One says she has found the 
color, and seizing a brush, she splashes away ambitiously and paints a future - 
in pinks! How nice -- it is settled at last; that is just the shade! But looking 
again, in a different hour, the light has faded; the snow is only gray after all. 
Or perhaps the once delicate flush has reddened with new reflections and is 
garish, misjudged, --wrong. It will not do, so we look — and look again, and 
each time see a different shade. 

How can we tell? Must we still look? Yes, -- for nothing can stop us. We 
shall build pictures that will fade out flat and dull. Is it gray, — or green, — or 
silvery purple? There is nothing so elusive as shadows on snow!

€>\\ Valentine's; JDap 



I would have it lying by your bed, when you opened your eyes on St. Valen- 
tine's Day in the morning, a square, white envelope! And somehow though it 
had no name you'd think of me, so many miles away, and smile. Softly, expect- 
antly you'd pull it out of the envelope, all lace and with a shower of little ribbons 
that cascaded down your bare, pink arm and with faint odors of violets stealing 
out of the crevices of the lace and floating tantalizingly about your head. Then 
after a minute you'd turn that page and rub your eyes and stare and laugh and 
pinch yourself -- for there I'd be! And we'd sit together on the pink coverlet 
with the sunbeams dancing in through the window and laugh and laugh, for it 
would be such a delicious joke for St. Valentine's day in the morning. 



Breams 



Dim little fragrant thoughts of babyhood, 

Scarcely remembered dreams of fairy tales, 

And lords and ladies, ships with shining sails, 

Of prince's buckler, grave monk's beads and hood. 

Then wistfully and shyly, older mood 

Begins, to bring a fairyland of vales 

And forests, through whose depths a bugle wails 

Mournful, then gay, blown by a hunter rude. 

Sometimes a noble knight, and then a page, 

Or yet a king, or jester seeming-gay, 

Touching the fickle fancy of each age. 

But always the same eyes, so smouldering grey. 

Oh, dream of many shapes, what form, what stage, 
Will make you real, and will it be to-day?

SYNOPSIS 



Once upon a time in olden France there lived and loved two children, Sylvette and Percinet. 
Oftimes for the sake of a kiss, they would steal by starlight to the crumbling old wall that separated 
their gardens, little dreaming that their fathers were far from being the feudal foes they thought 
them. 

One night the bell for vespers found Percinet waiting at the wall for Sylvette, when a sudden 
shriek rang through the gardens! In a trice he had leapt to the other side, and was upon the rav- 
ishers, sword in hand, and when Bergamin and Pasquinot arrived on the disordered scene, it was to 
find Sylvette in the arms of Percinet. Well did the fathers feign astonishment, and well might 
they be reconciled to the marriage since it was naught but their own cherished plan! 

With this change of conditions the wall was torn down, the two gardens merged in one, and now 
constant irritations between Bergamin and Pasquinot arose, finally resulting in a complete con- 
fession of the false abduction to Sylvette. Percinet, reading by mistake the bill of the abduction 
drawn up by the swordsman, Straforel, who had staged the little drama, fled in a rage from the gar- 
den. 

At this utter ruin of all their hopes and plans, Bergamin and Pasquinot considered the bill of the 
abduction void, and so, in order to get his ninety pistoles, Straforel was forced to patch up the mar- 
riage, which he did by so disgusting Sylvette with romance that it was with open arms she wel- 
comed back the wanderer, and the scene ends in a charming tableau — the wedding minuet.

SYNOPSIS 

In a cottage on the edge of the wood, a Princess lived, the captive, though she knew it not, of a 
Witch, but guarded by her friends, the Fairy Folk. One day, a band of men came through the 
wood, who from the King, still sought the child. Their leader, a right gallant Prince, led to the 
Witch's house by fairy glow-worms, found a sweet-faced Granny spinning in the sun, and saw 
Melinda busy at her household tasks, for she was ever serving. About her neck there hung a golden 
chain, the Fairy Ring, which guarded her from every harm. To cheer the traveler on his way, 
the Granny mixed a tasty stew, but learning of his quest, she poured in snakes, and toads and slimy 
things, which drinking, caused the Prince to swoon, and falling cry, "Thou art a witch!" Me 
linda, having known naught else but kindness from her Granny, turned horrified upon her, and the 
Witch, ashamed and frightened by her look, went sorrowfully within the house. Then, guessing 
of the power the Fairy Ring might hold, Melinda flung the golden circlet 'round the Prince's 
shoulders. He rose, and viewing her anew, he saw she was the royal child he sought, for hers had 
been the magic touch with which the fairies had endowed her at her birth. Straightway he would 
have led her from the place had not Melinda, looking back, seen the old Granny standing in the 
door. Her sorcery had fled before the pain of parting with her foster child, whom she had loved 
and cared for many years. Melinda, running back, declared she could not leave her lonely, dear old 
Granny, but now the Prince made all things right by saying that within the royal palace she might 
be a Grandmother to all the court. And so they left the spot, the Prince, the Granny, and the fair 
Princess, and the Fairy Folk have kept it ever since.

SYNOPSIS 

In 1916 Americans were infinitely more interested in bridge parties, fraternity tea dances, 
and bloody pacifist meetings than in the World War. At least so it seemed to Jill Alexander, who 
felt it desperately, although treated as an insignificant "flapper" not yet out. And because her 
brother Hugh and his much-admired friend Gerard Manning, a young college professor, seemed to 
care nothing, Jill herself secretly enlisted in an Italian Women's Battalion. Her plans were dis- 
covered by a telephone message and as she obstinately defended herself against the scorn and anger 
of her family she found an unexpected ally in Gerard, who quietly announced that he himself was 
shortly sailing to enlist in the Foreign Legion. So Jill no longer had to despise him, but he, res- 
pecting her youth, had to postpone till after the war, really telling her of his love. Hugh awoke 
suddenly to a new appreciation of his sister and friend and the war, and consequently enlisted him- 
self, leaving Jill, half-reluctant, half-exultant, at home to wait for the return of both.

Georgia."
